Strange curiosity

by libr8tr

I have a question.  I don’t know the answer.  Here it is:

Why do so many evangelicals seem to gravitate toward speculation?  What makes speculative observations so attractive to Christians?

I don’t think it’s boredom.  But, I don’t know.  Somehow, people become obsessively fanatical over the speculations of some ‘Christian’ author.  This happens even if the author/speaker is patently unqualified to teach theology.

They imbibe a titillating ‘revelation’, then become a proselytizing evangelist of the apocalyptic vision of a peripheral Christian.  Once the fuel is spent, and the prophecies and speculations have come to their natural conclusion, they hibernate until another peripheral Christian author/speaker finds some new ‘hidden knowledge’ to pass on.

It reminds me of those who are tossed by every wind of doctrine.
